Audible Editor Reviews

Before there was David Sedaris' brother "Rooster", there was Donald Davis' "Uncle Frank". These Uncle Frank stories - "Rainy Weather", "Uncle Frank Learns to Speak Polish", and "Uncle Frank Cleans Up the Post Office" - feature Frank at his very best: fox hunting, mangling foreign languages, and making righteous civic speeches. Davis takes listeners on a rollicking ride through his uncle's comic universe in the irresistible style that has earned him multiple storytelling awards. Davis says of his time growing up in Southern Appalachia, "I didn't learn stories; I just absorbed them", and in this performance the listener will likewise become a sponge to Davis's ripe talent.

Publisher's Summary

Traditional values abound in these hilarious stories from Appalachia: friendship, family, orderliness, humor, and delight in an especially inventive practical joke. In "Rainy Weather", a hound dog with more heart than sense wins everyone's admiration. "Uncle Frank Learns to Speak Polish" finds Davis' famous Uncle Frank making the most of a little foreign language. And, in "Uncle Frank Clean Up the Post Office", cleanliness is next to godliness, and it's also next to hilarity.

What the Critics Say

"Davis has interconnected this set of stories in such a way as to create a place...as memorable as Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon?" (Lexington Herald-Leader)
"As wholesome as milk." (Raleigh News and Observer)
